The Medical Assistant program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to build a successful career as a medical assistant or patient care assistant. Students will be well prepared to work in both the clinical and administrative areas in physician’s offices, hospitals, or personal care facilities.
Students will have the opportunity to practice clinical procedures, laboratory techniques, and administrative responsibilities in a realistic setting. Students also take medical assistant classes in terminology, office accounting practices, record keeping and other health care administration topics.
The clinical areas are equipped with exam tables, EKG machines, phlebotomy chairs, and other typical medical office equipment, allowing students to develop their skills in various patient procedures and clinical tests.
The program concludes with an externship to a local medical facility to provide hands-on working experience in the field so that students have the experience to be an asset to medical personnel right after graduating.
